*SOLD* OO Klipsch Chorus II & walnut Academy *SOLD*

Recommended Posts

I'm offering up a pair of oak oil Chorus IIs, for pick up in South Orange County. Speakers sound terrific, but have a few cosmetic issues.

 

There are stains on both tops from the previous owner, one looking like maybe it was left by a flower pot, the other much smaller. There are also some scratches on tops, but nothing major. For some reason, the previous owner put 5 pin holes across each front above the grill, which are noticeable up close, but start to blend in from a few feet away.

 

Other than the above, they look pretty good. I used Howard Restor-A-Finish followed by Howard Feed-N-Wax on the cabinets, and the grills, speakers and radiators are in nice shape.

 

One set of binding posts has been changed out, for whatever reason, to gold plated ones, while the other remains the red and black plastic ones that came stock. I opened the modified one up to make sure that the crossover had not been replaced, and it hadn't. The Chorus II binding post cup remains, as well.

 

When I bought them, both speakers had aftermarket tweeter diaphragms, which I replaced with Crites. All other drivers and speakers appeared to be stock. Serial numbers are sequential. I do not have boxes for them.

 

I am asking $500 $475 for them, which I think is more than fair. *SOLD

 

I have a nice walnut Academy as well (see multiple photos below), which I would like $200 $185 for, also available for local pick up only (sorry). *SOLD

 

For possible trade options, see post #20.

 

If you are interested, and would like more photos, I will send via email.

Just realized I don't have the Academy pics ready to post (need to resize/reformat), so they are forthcoming. Until then, I can email them if anybody wants. The Academy also got the Howard treatment (for walnut), and is in nicer shape than the Chorus IIs.

There are small cracks on some of the corners of the tweeter, which can be seen by enlarging the appropriate photos.

Beautiful speakers gmc. Don't think this deal will last long at all. Very fair price indeed for someone to get a sweet setup.

A steal if there ever was one.

Would not let mine go for that price.

Should go quick.

Might be willing to negotiate trades involving:

 

Juicy Music Blueberry Xtreme

Thorens TD124 MKII outer platter (must be straight/true)

 

Still pick up only.
